The leading performance based online platform for Destinations to engage travelers interested in visiting their destination


The Travel Guide Group is a travel marketing and consulting company helping Destinations (tourism boards, convention & visitor bureaus, chambers of commerce, destination marketing organizations, etc.) expand their reach, awareness, education, inspiration and engagement of travelers to ultimately visit and experience their respective destination.

Our primary focus is attracting active travelers seeking print and digital guides from destinations they would like to visit.

A majority of travelers would like to visit and explore a new place they have not been before. However, most travelers are not aware of all the places and experiences available to them. We help bring your destination and all one can do to the travelers attention.

We are a centralized source to help travelers decide where to visit and experience their next adventure.

10 million travel guide requests
since 2006

As part of our online performance marketing platform, we operate multiple web-sites that have become the preferred source for travelers to request free print and digital travel guides.

We have been empowering destination marketers to reach only leisure travelers interested in visiting their specific destination across the U.S. and Canada.

We reach travelers at the most critical time in the travel planning process and point of influence

When they are deciding where to go, what else they can do on their trip, and how long to stay to accommodate all they would like to experience.

Simply put, we help make an impact to drive more visitors, to stay longer, spend more, and experience all the destination has to offer. And, better yet, we do so more efficiently and cost effective than most other alternatives.


There is a reason we have established a reputation for the best value and most qualified leads in the industry.

And, why many of our partners have been with us for 10+ years.

  • We love travel, enjoy what we do, work hard, and have fun along the way.
  • We work closely with Destinations in the truest spirit of partnership, and act as a part or extension of their team.

Our difference


We are performance based. We have the expertise, do all the work, and take all the risk. You only pay for qualified leads when they are delivered.

  • Basically, once you set your goal and provide an image of your travel guide cover, you sit back and wait for your weekly lead report.
  • Of course, the more we know about your destination, audience, historic programs, data, and goals, the better armed we are to help.
  • Our primary tools are our experienced experts and focused web-sites that attract active travelers seeking print and digital guides from destinations they would like to visit.

Our in-house and network of travel and digital media experts have many years hands-on experience in most areas of travel, digital marketing, sales, and social networking.

They continue to leverage and optimize market opportunities to attract and engage travelers, deliver partner campaign goals, and provide the best experience and value for travelers and partners.
